Last year, Desi hip-hop army lost another soldier. Jaybee Shikari from hip hop duo Nau Sau Bai, met with an accident when he was en-route to Delhi from Chandigarh. A great artist and an even greater human being was lost in a car crash. After a year’s time, his companion Djay Adx from Nau Sau Bai paid homage to him in #JaanTohBaad. In fact, Raftaar too paid homage to him last year in a track “Chill Raamix”.
The track starts with an intro that shows the past videos of them performing live and chilling in the studio sessions. Dilpreet Singh who goes by the name of The Grim has beautifully picturised the video. In fact, he brings back all the memories of Jaybee Shikari alive on the screen. The video has cameos of Kru172, G-Frekey, Pardhaan and MoJo from Desi Beam. These artists shared a good bond with Jaybee, that’s why they showed their love and affection for him in #JaanTohBaad. His presence is surely missed!

Significant lyrics from the track
“Sirra da malang si ga att da shikari,
Belliyan da pakka aadi rakhi daadi,
Munda siga tharan da shokeen,
Naal e naran da shokeen.”
In a conversation with Djay Adx, he told Desihiphop.com, “The track was made last year, 2 months after the accident, but I couldn’t get over the fact that he is no more. Until recently I didn’t have the courage to work on releasing this song but then I gathered my strength and September came, the ninth month, and I thought it would be great to launch the tribute on the 22nd to give my homage to “JayBee Nau Sau Bai” and let everyone know his story through my words about what a great guy he was!”
